The X Factor: Season 2, Episode 22:: Top Finalists Live Show #5

Dec 06, 2012

Last night on The X Factor the Top Finalists performed live and unplugged, and on top of that America chose the songs this week! Find out more in the Kidzworld Recap of the Live Show #5 which aired December 5th, 2012.

The Unplugged Set

  • This week Cece Frey brought a better performance to the table with Lady Gaga's "Edge of Glory," and even L.A. admitted that he was feeling her this week.
  • Emblem3's version of the Bruno Mars song "Just the Way You Are" didn't do it for Demi at all this week, and she accused these surfers of sounding like downgraded version of The Joans Brothers - ouch!
  • Carly Rose Sonenclar did a pitch perfect rendition of Justin Bieber's "As Long As You Love Me," and although Demi was not easily impressed this week, she gushed that it was a exciting to hear an acoustic version that was better than the original.
  • Fifth Harmony performed the Adele hit "Set Fire to the Rain," but again L.A. thinks that since their name is "harmony" they should be doing more harmonising, in fact he howled at his own suggestion that they be renamed "Fifth Unison." Demi made an interesting point when she said the group is entirely made up of enough great singers that they could all go solo.
  • Diamond White went back to the beginning and Simon called her out on it with her performance of  James Brown's "It's a Man's World" ( you may remember it as her audition song).
  • Tate Stevens tried to inject new life into Bon Jovi's "Livin On a Prayer," and while some of the key changes were a bit awkward, it was definitely interesting.

The Pepsi Challenge

  • CeCe Frey did Katy Perry's "Part of Me," but it didn't live up to her first performance, even when she hit the big notes.
  • Emblem3 performed Alphaville's "Forever Young," L.A. gushed that they nailed it, but Demi wanted more crowd work - it is $5 million we're talking about after all.
  • Carly Rose Sonenclar sang Beyonce's "If I Were a Boy," and Simon's major complaint was that the lyrics of the song were a little old for her.
  • Fifth Harmony truly brought the harmonies on Demi Lovato's "Give Your Heart a Break," and simply wowed the audience and judges, with Simon claiming that the competition wouldn't be the same without them.
  • Whether you think the song choice is cute or cheezy, Diamond White's rendition of  Rihanna's "Diamonds" showed off the young singer's vocal range.
  • Tate Stevens' flawless version of Garth Brooks "If Tomorrow Never Comes," was also a little forgettable (sadly) and even Demi found herself nodding off during the number.

Check out Fifth Harmony singing "Give Your Heart a Break" below

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
